Crypto and the Constitution of the United States of America - Part 3

Well who would have thought...

It turns out that Kenneth Griffin, billionaire founder of hedge fund Citadel, supervillian archenemy of the Gamestop crowd, was the winner of the US Constitution at the Sotheby's.

He paid $43.2 million for the Constitution and intends to loan it to the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, founded by Walmart heir Alice Walton.

Despite losing the bid, it looks like the original aim of ConstitutionDAO was achieved. As per their website, if they had won, "ConstitutionDAO is seeking an esteemed partner to publicly display the Constitution. The eventual home must have the expertise to properly house, store, and maintain the artifact".

It could have been worse. Ken Griffin could have cut the document up, used it to roll a joint and livestream himself smoking it.

So what now?

The ConstitutionDAO

The twitter feed of the DAO says they would like to use the monies to move to some new venture, currently undefined. Those who want out, will have their Ethereum returned.

Looks like this is not the end of the story.
